Calling all Engineers and Architects! Join us for a week of hands-on fun as we learn about forces such as tension, compression, torsion. We will discuss various types of load and challenge you to build strong, tall structures out of a variety of materials. We will travel back to medieval times as we examine castle structures and their fortifications. We will build our own structures and then explore and engineer contraptions to breach them. We will experiment with such diverse building materials as paper, straws, wood and even spaghetti. Students will learn to identify different bridge designs and construction materials used in modern day engineering. Finally, time permitting we will make our very own wooden marble runs.
Campers will work both individually and in teams to create structures which will be tested to see how well they survive under different natural conditions.
